The rise and fall of German military fortunes are traced in these five original Nazi newsreels from 1941 to 1945. Here are the great campaigns: Hitler's attack against Soviet Russia, with scenes of Army Group North advancing toward Leningrad; the 1942 capture of Sevastopol by von Manstein's 30th Army Corps; the gigantic armored clash of Germany's elite divisions and their Soviet counterparts at Kursk; the German defense of Eastern France in October 1944 and the Germans' battle for their own frontier in the final months. A vivid impression of the milestones of World War 2.
Germany, 1941--1945, B&W, 85 minutes, German commentary, English subtitles.
